InnerChef, the ready-to-cook meals delivery startup, has acquired Bangalore-based EatOnGo – an on-demand meal service startup; and Gurgaon-based Flavour Labs – a food truck company.
“We are building a network of kitchens in each city. Mobile kitchens help us to be closer to our customers and create an intimate food experience,” said Bal Di Ghent, co-founder, InnerChef, in a statement.
“These acquisitions will help InnerChef deepen its offerings to the two of the fastest growing markets in India: NCR and Bangalore. We are also acquiring awesome talent who share our passion for food and technology,” added Sawhney.
Gurgaon-based InnerChef delivers pre-cooked, sliced food to customers with all necessary ingredients as well as the recipe packed in a kit. It was started by Sawhney, Bal DiGhent, Heena Karia Thakkar, Uday Bansal and Rahul Samat.
However, some of the co-founders, incuding Heena Thakkar, Uday Bansal and Rahul Samat quit a few months ago as part of what the company called a ‘restructuring exercise’.
In November last year, Anand Chandrasekaran, Snapdeal’s chief product officer, had made an undisclosed amount of investment in InnerChef. Prior to that, the company raised $1.6 million in pre-Series A funding from Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Redbus co-founder Phanindra Sama, Shaadi.com’s Anupam Mittal and others.
